HONOLULU — The Hawaii National Guard said Thursday seven members who traveled to Washington to help provide security on Inauguration Day have tested positive for COVID-19.

All were in isolation and haven’t displayed symptoms, the Guard said in a news release.

Hawaii sent 200 Guard members to Washington for the mission. All were tested after they flew home to Honolulu on four different flights last weekend and Tuesday.

Those who tested negative will still be required to complete a 14-day quarantine.
